Soundboards from 1982 have a lot of audible stage banter and the band is in good spirits. There's the discussion before Cassidy on 4-19-82 about Bob remembering the new change. Also, the show on 5-21-82 had a nice conversation about the 2nd set set list which I believe Phil says "Playin', Uncle Johns, Fuck Off"
There's another show in '82 where they mention something about "some fat chick"...cant remember which show that is.

5/13/77

Right before Samson...paraphrasing here but this is the gist:

Bob: "Mickey wants me to inform y'all...I don't really understand it...but he says, the first rule,...the first law of rock and roll is 'drummers do not make house calls.'...(pause from confused audience)....I don't get it, either."

Is that the same show in which Bobby announces that the drummers "pulled an adolescent stunt before the show" and "we're gonna spend the whole night getting even with them"?

There's been plenty of shows where you can here them talking stuff over on stage. Not always highly audible, but if you bend your ear enough you can make out what's going on....

2 favorites:

10-17-78 at the beginning of space some gal is asking Jerry for banjo lessons, as he explains he doesn't teach anymore Bobby says something about being arrested.

12-27-86 - Before the encore Billy says to Weir - "How about we do Playin in the Band again, 4 or 5 more times.

These are the only 2 that come to mind right off...

Saratoga 85 as well was memorable.
